We started out more unconventional and have slowly gravitated to conventional as my kids have gotten older. My dd is too old for the hands on, craft-based curriculums and just wants the structure that conventional education offers. We still do a lot of visual stuff for ds, but most of it is just plain old textbooks.
We are fairly traditional. We use workbooks/textbooks for most things. I am going to do Geography this year for my 1st grader and my 10th grader. We are going to do parts of it together (to save time) and then they will have separate assignments as well that is on their grade level.
I don't really know what we are yet as this will be our first year. I do have a good amout of textbooks/workbooks but I have read enough to know this might not cut it for us and we might have to change it up. I hope to do a bunch of field trips to reinforce lessons. So I guess my PLAN for the year is pretty traditional. We will see how it works out.
We use a very structured boxed curriculum. My girls are thriving with it an excelling at a rate faster than their peers. We are going to start our next year in January, but I don't want them to lose a lot in the 5-6 mos that they will have "off", so we are going a little unconventional and going to learn things that I think they will have fun with....like the solar system and then get to build one.
I used K12 for 8 years now going to go off grid this fall
WE are very traditional in our approach. I am going to try some "non-traditional" methods through the fall...until Thanksgiving. I hope this may bring my kids and I closer to each other.
